The Cultivate Program


Building continuously our Appreciation of Art, participants in Studio Teens embrace learnings about themes in Current Exhibitions as well as drawing on Concepts & Contemporary Understandings. Participants look at ideas stemming from Design Purpose, Materiality & Products on the market, historical references selected by Erin, and relevant information to inform their practice, and inspire personal projects.


The Cultivate Program connects in some of the thematic appreciations in the Art of Giving Art Program, recognizing the importance of Culture, the communication of values & interpretative recognitions & viewpoints of ‘story telling’.


Participants also have the option as part of their membership to attend Exhibition Outings & social experiences, as part of Art Journey Days - unique to our space.

" Technique,.. dialogue.. a friendly atmosphere...  and it's naturally in cool territory for any developing young person -

no stereotypes, art liberty.

Being part of the Art Community starts at Art School. We encourage each other. "

Art School & Holistic Care

Professional Art Studio & Art Experiences

Art School Technique and more



Teens begin to develop a more concrete relationship of Identity through extra curricular activities and also Enrichment programs from about the age of 11 onwards. At Sienna Art Space, we like to offer Drawing as an enrichment that is separate from Painting Enrichment. 

1. Allignment and 2. Resonance contribute to solidifying the milestones of the Art journey. They become Individually motivated to develop mini art projects, as well as seeing how flourishing natural gravitations may form new larger projects over time. 

Our Art School has a relaxed setting with strong-teen development. There is a focused dialogue and acceleration on certain features of our development while embedding new grounds for recognition - How can I improve? 

Technique and confidence are with core continuum. There is always an awareness of learning that can be developed due to the nature of aesthetics and with an acknowledgement for where we have come from. Studio members over time get to explore mediumistic intention and benefit from focuses for representation: across watercolour, drawing media, oils, soft pastel and so forth. We have a focus on Artist materials and see the value of that development being explored well in our Studio environment for making art. 

There is simply no competition-values and everyone desires well for each other in our setting. It restores the feeling and the positive momentum at times. The developing adults as teens are gorgeous where they are given time to mingle ( with both sexes) and to even share chai. Lots of chat (appropriate) and a relaxed space make for a rewarded group. A mixed group of ages is great for them to grow confidence in every aspect of rapport and community climate.
